Legals experts believe the bombing was carried out in retaliation for the destruction of an Iranian airliner

People & Power look into the findings of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission, which has been reviewing the conviction of a Libyan man after an airline was bombed over Scotland in 1988, killing 270 people.

Many believe that the conviction of Libyan, Abdel Basset Ali-Megrahi, for the bombing of PanAm flight 103 over Lockerbie in Scotland, is unsafe. They claim that there has long been a "cover-up of convenience". Scottish authorities have been reviewing the case against the man convicted of the crime.

On the 18th anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing, the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission published its three-year probe.
